Pregnancy

No matter what stage of pregnancy you’re at, Weight Management Leicestershire can provide tailored, effective support and guidance.

*Residents across Leicestershire can receive personalised nutrition advice that helps to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Led by Nutritionists, you will receive personalised nutrition advice that helps you to make healthier food and activity choices. As a result, you can improve your overall health throughout pregnancy and beyond.

 

Why is being a healthy weight important?

It is important for your overall health to maintain a healthy weight. Doing so can make you feel more energised and reduce your risk of various health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Maintaining a healthy weight can also help with fertility for those looking to start a family.

Eating well and staying active during pregnancy can mean a healthier pregnancy and a safer birth. You should always follow your midwives’ advice.

 

Who can benefit?

Pre-pregnancy

You may benefit from tailored guidance if you are planning a pregnancy and require support to reach a healthy weight.

If you are preparing for or undergoing fertility treatment, we can provide advice on how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight to meet fertility treatment criteria.

To take part in Weight Management Leicestershire whilst pregnant, you will need to obtain a referral from your midwife.
